Off the Needles
BFF Cowl Seed Pod link - loved knitting this. It made so much sense. I was a bit confused in the beginning with the chart bc I didn't realize that is was akin to a lace chart, but looking at the pictures made me realize tis before I started the flower bc it was logical. You could get a sense of what will happen next.

On the Needles
Bella Mitts. I really want to try and finish the second one before Montreal or within the first day or two of landing. I am also planning to bring the long hibernating Dionysius socks, and the Larch Cardigan.


Spin Right Round
Spinning after a month, of not being at the wheel. Not really liking pencil roving.

Swatch and Learn
Got an Elmo, knit stitch accomplished except for 3 kids. One is still struggling to cast on - has horrible handwriting and holds his pencil weirdly. Any tips for those with hand issues? I know knitting will help him but running out of ideas.
